The programme

It seeks to give students a learning experience that allows them to develop proficiencies that create effective accounting professionals in today’s changing business environment. The curriculum and learning and teaching strategy are complemented by guest lectures and ‘live’ workshops to promote independent learning and increasing their employability skills for the future.

This knowledge and skills will be further developed and expanded in the years following successful completion of the Foundation Year. The degree programme is designed so that the Foundation Year provides an underpinning year, incorporating both academic and work/professional related learning, for applicants needing to improve their knowledge and understanding of management and its related skills.

The year provides students with knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of social sciences along with the necessary skills needed to participate in the undergraduate business programmes at levels 4, 5 and 6.

This includes developing numeracy skills with the aim to develop students’ mathematical knowledge and skills in a way which encourages confidence and appreciation of mathematics as a subject and providing students with the mathematical background necessary for business studies at undergraduate level. The Foundation Year also offers a literacy skills module that is designed to support students entering Higher Education at Level 3 wishing to progress to a BSc in Accounting and Finance.

Year 1 provides you with a good understanding of the foundations of accounting and finance alongside the fundamentals of business. Years 2 and 3 gives you in-depth knowledge of how companies use accounting and finance to make decisions, report performance under conditions of uncertainty and risk.

The programme provides the intellectual underpinnings required for a professional career in a rapidly changing work environment, a rigorous approach to self-awareness and personal development and a significant exposure to the world of work and its current demands through work experience opportunities.

 

“I prefer online learning because I can fit it around my various jobs, busy social life, and I can work from wherever I am. I spend time abroad during the year, so the online option is ideal.”
